Why grow sprouts?
- Sprouts are baby plants in their prime. In this early stage of growth, sprouts provide the full flavor of the fully grown adult vegetables, with a greater concentration of proteins, vitamins and minerals, enzymes, and bio-flavinoids than at any other point in the plant’s life – even when compared with the mature vegetable!
- Sprouts contain twice the protein of spinach, four times the protein of lettuce, and 39 times more beta-carotene!
- Instead of 1 head of lettuce, you get 1,000′s of micro-lettuce leaves. All the nutrients needed to grow into the full grown plant are contained in the sprout.
- As baby plants, sprouts’ delicate cell walls easily release elemental nutrients, so they’re very easy to digest.
- Grow fresh, living salads that are low in fat, low in calories, and high in energy.
- 100% Organic Salad, 52 weeks a year, for only pennies per pound!
- Growing sprouts takes only one minute of watering per day. Needs only normal room light & temperature.
- One pound of healthy sprouts grows in only 9 inches of space.
- Totally fresh. Eat your sprouts right when you pick them. There’s no loss of nutrients while your food sits in a warehouses or store shelf.
- Sprouts are versatile in your kitchen: make sprout breads from sprouted wheat, rye, or barley. Snacks from sprouted peanuts, hummus dip from sprouted garbanzo, cooked vegetable side dish made from sprouted green peas, stir fries with beans and lentils, even sprouted wheat pizza!
Seeds can multiply from 7 to 15 times their weight. For alfalfa seed costing $15.00/lb., a modest 10 times yield of full-grown alfalfa greens would cost $1.50 per pound. Try to find organic anything at the produce stand for that price!
Grow radish, broccoli, kale, sunflower, peas, garlic, chives, and more. Familiar plants that are typically grown outdoors! When only a week old, these plants are extremely delicate, delicious, and are super nutritious. You can use them to make salads, soups, sandwiches, smoothies, bread, and much more. (More ideas can be found in Sproutman’s Kitchen Garden Cookbook.) You’ll be amazed by how rich the flavors are.
Sprouts are baby vegetables in their prime. They have a greater concentration of nutrients including proteins, vitamins and minerals, enzymes, RNA, DNA, and phytochemicals than at any other stage of growth. Nutrients are significantly more concentrated in the sprout than in the mature vegetable!
As baby plants, their delicate cell walls easily release elemental nutrients. Abundant enzymes make them easy to digest, even for those with weak digestion.
